If your gonna drag race, then get the fastest 600..best to ride, or at least sit on each bike, and et the one that feels best to you...

For me, the gixxer, and Kawi feel the best...but being a die hard gixxer fan..I'd get the gix..

Every bike has their merits, ..none are perfect.

My friend just got an '04 R6 w/a D&D. I've raced him a few times and beat him every one. Might be my pipe and PCIII, but i'm not complaining.
